There have been 43 confirmed pediatric deaths attributed to swine flu in the United States.
According to the World Health Organization, “as of July 31, the total number of victims killed by the H1N1 virus, also known as swine flu, stood at 1,154 — an increase of 338 since WHO’s previous update on July 27.”
Though this is not the general consensus:
“The Americas remained hardest hit, with at least 105,882 infections and 1,579 deaths. Europe had more than 32,000 cases and 53 deaths, while South-East Asia had over 13,172 infections, of which 106 were fatal.”
The discrepancy supposedly lies in the fact that:
“WHO data on the pandemic influenza A(H1N1), as the virus is technically known, is accompanied by a disclaimer which notes: “given that countries are no longer required to test and report individual cases, the number of cases reported actually understates the real number of cases.” “
As of 11 October 2009, there have been over 4735 deaths from the H1N1 influenza reported to the World Health Organization.
